What is the learning and inspiration we must draw from saints who have graced this land? Bhagawan lovingly inspires giving us the example of one of the greats.
Kabir was weaving a yellow silk garment for his Lord Rama. He had to work the loom alone, by hand. He recited “Rama Rama Rama” and went on weaving ceaselessly. The cloth became twenty yards long, but Kabir didn’t stop. His penance continued unabated, and the garment was becoming longer. The bliss of the craft and devotion to his Lord was enough food and drink for his sustenance! When he gave it to the temple priest for clothing the idol of Rama, the garment was just the right length and breadth, not a finger breadth more! Such men are the mainsprings of the joy that spiritual persons fill themselves with, in India. The home must resound to the name of Govinda; otherwise, it is just a cave (Guha), where wild animals dwell. The body needs a house, but your body is itself a house. In that house too, the Name of Govinda must be heard, or else it is a mud-pot (Ghata), not a human body!
